Market Lavington Museum

The Philpott Family


On our opening day of the season we had a visitor tracing the history of the Philpott family. We probably don’t know as much as we might about this once leading family in the village.

Let’s start with some dates. In 1773 Henry Philpott was at The Green Dragon. We are not sure in what capacity. There are plenty of Philpott baptisms in the parish.

Henry also took the brickworks. We know he leased Brick Kiln Field in 1840.

The Philpott family drifted away from Market Lavington. In 1851 there were 18 Philpotts in the parish. By 1881 there were just 8 and in 1911 there were none.

One Philpott has left his mark, literally, for the museum.

In 1861 Caroline Philpott, Widow, was ‘victualler’ at the Royal Oak in Easterton.

We have odd snapshots of information. It would be lovely if someone out there can put some flesh on our bare Philpott bones.
